Attend Events

Parents and family members visit the campus for many different events and activities throughout the year.  Two signature events that attract a large number of guests are K-State Open House and K-State Family Day.  K-State Family Day includes two signature activities as special projects of K-State PFP.  The Legacy Pinning Ceremony and Brunch and the K-State Family Tailgate activities are a great way for families to celebrate together during Family Day. See photos from past events.
